Nothing out of place

At the conclusion of one of the services for which I had served as usher in our branch Church of Christ, Scientist, I went into one of the restrooms to turn off the lights. Upon exiting, I lost my footing on a flight of stairs. I landed on my feet, but I heard a very audible crack in one foot. Immediately, as a natural reflex, I mentally rejected any idea of breakage or strain, affirming that such suggestions are totally unknown to God and therefore unreal.

I limped out to the parking lot, but was careful not to mention the incident to anyone, as I was unwilling to give it any sense of reality in my thought. After arriving home, I made a conscious effort to avoid mentally reliving the incident in order to not give it any power.

As I prayed, I acknowledged the unchangeable nature of God’s being, recognizing that “God is ‘the same yesterday, and to-day, and forever;’ …” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 2) and that God does not experience accidents or injury to His being. Furthermore, I acknowledged that, since I am created in God’s image and likeness, I couldn’t suffer either.
